§ 63. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Postmaster-General whether it can be arranged to allow candidates during a by-election to broadcast a statement of their policy, particularly in the winter months, when so many of the electorate are not in a position to attend meetings?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
As I explained yesterday, it is not proposed to permit the broadcasting of matters of political controversy, and I am unable to make an exception in the ease of political speeches made during by-elections.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Will this policy be pursued at a General Election; and will it apply to the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, and the Leader of the Liberal party?
